Some trends just stick and every brand picks up on it. The off the shoulder dress, top, jumpsuit is one of those trends. We first tried it (again) in Spring 2013 and we still can’t get enough. Personally, I have a long Seed Heritage Maxi from last summer and a recent Seed jumpsuit that I’m excited to wear with sneakers or dress up with my favourite heels.
At first I avoided the trend, thinking, because I have a DD bust that has not stood up well to breast feeding and age. I thought no bad boy strapless was going to hold up these puppies but as I browsed the racks and came across a long black off the shoulder dress that was just the mix I like of femme and structure; I had to try it. To my astonishment I looked pretty hot but it was how it made me feel that had me whipping out my card. I felt like a woman, a womanly woman and for someone who dresses like a tomboy most of the time it wasn’t a feeling I was used too. Of course I know I’m a woman, the above mentioned bust is a constant reminder but it was nice to embrace it with my clothing choices for a change and make my womanliness work for me not dictate what I could wear. I had a strapless bra fitted with my gorgeous Intimo consultant, Tania and haven’t looked back.
There is a Strapless Top, dress, jumpsuit out there for you too. Whether it’s fitted and structured for the Hourglass sisters, bohemian and gathered for the slender or drop waisted a soft for the Apple (me) ; This is a trend worth trying.
